Pauie - R.I.P.

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I haven't been around for a while, but I thought I'd let you all know - Pau Sau (or Pauie, as we called him) our beautiful Snow Bengal boy, whom we've only had for a few years through Bengal rescue, was put to sleep this morning at 11.08am.

He was diagnosed with Bowel Cancer 2 years ago. Since then, he was seeing a Homeopathist, went into remission, and was doing very well.

He has had boughts of illness off and on, but was fighting on bravely, but the vet assured us that the cancer hadn't returned.

Then a couple of weeks ago, he started going downhill. We fought back, and then last weekend, we had to take him to the emergency vet, on Sunday morning. He was dehydrated, and his little body was disappearing in front of us. They kept him in, and gave him fluids, and he came home, brighter on Tuesday. It was a temporary reprieve.

On Friday night, he went downhill fast. I spoke with our vet on Saturday, who said, to give him some new meds, and a different food, and encourage him to eat. Pauie was never happy with the vet visits, and I described in detail Pauie's condition. He was prescribed the meds over the phone, and I went to collect them. He had the first dose within the hour. We followed his advice, and picked up new food which was designed for quick absorbtion. He had an hour or so of improvement, but that was really it.

We sat with Pauie day and night. Syringed fluids into him every hour throughout. My mum was with him all night last night as I was so exhausted both emotionally and physically - I needed to sleep, I couldn't go on. When I got up this morning, Pauie had deteriorated so much he couldn't even stand up any more and inspite of all the fluids, he was chronically dehydrated. I wish I'd stayed up with him.

We dashed to the vets, and there I made the decision to let him go. He passed away in my arms almost instantly the moment chemicals went in, with my nose pressed firmly against his, and mum and dad stroking him too. He didn't make a sound as he slipped away.

So that's it. My poor Pauie is gone. He is going to be buried in our garden as soon as it stops raining. I've already dug the grave.

Thank you so much for all the help, advice, and support you gave us with
Pauie. I don't think he would have been with us for quite so long if it wouldn't have been for all of you. I just wish I'd had a little longer with my precious boy.

Rest in peace, my boy. You'll always be with us, in our hearts and minds. We'll always love and miss you. Sweet dreams, my love.

My heart goes out to you. At least now, he's pain free, and is running and playing freely at The Rainbow Bridge, and waiting to see you again someday. He was a very beautiful and very brave boy.

Condolences to you & your family, Sonia. Your words are so poignant, that I am crying! How I wish that you would have had more time with Pauie, but I am glad that you had the courage & the LOVE to put his comfort & needs ahead of your own pain, and let him go with dignity & peace.
Your heroic efforts gained Pauie extra time with a quality life, and when he comes running to meet you when you cross RB, he will tell you ThankYou. Rest in Peace, Pauie - you were so loved even the very sky is crying.
Hugs, Susan

He's well over the bridge now and suffering no more, but you will see him again, but in the meantime he's got his new lease of life and playing happily with all the other Rainbow Bridge kitties

RIP Pauie you gorgeous little boy! Run and play with all the other kitties until you see your mum again

Sonia, I'm so sorry to hear of Pauie's passing. You tried so hard, you gave it your best shot, and then you gave him what only a loving companion can give: release. He's pain free and happy now, even as you try to adjust to the hole he leaves in your life. Be gentle with yourself.

RIP Sweet Pauie

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I know you must be heartbroken right now, it's clear you loved him very dearly. You did everything possible to give him back his health, and he knew it. Letting him go, releasing him from his suffering, was your final selfless act of love. You gave him a wonderful, loving home and I know he will be waiting for you over the Rainbow Bridge. And I have to add--what a beautiful boy he was! Thank you for the photo--he had the sweetest face. And please don't reproach yourself for needing sleep--you're only human like all of us, and he wasn't alone, your mother was giving him lots of loving care--and most important, your beautiful boy went to the Bridge while cradled in your loving arms. RIP sweet Pauie

Condolences on the loss of your beloved Pauie. Poor little boy, I'm sorry he couldn't stay with you longer. What a loving Meowmie you are! And what a peaceful end-giving a nose kiss to his beloved Meowmie! He gently went to sleep, to wake up in heaven!

Dance over the Rainbow Bridge, little man, restored to full health. Your family will be along in due time.

Hugs to you at this difficult time.
